Barmoor Facilities & Layout

The accommodation is simple but well equipped, offering good facilities for self-catering groups.

The house has no television or Wi-Fi, in keeping with the calm atmosphere of the house and its location.  Mobile phone coverage in the house and garden is poor but there is a payphone in the house.

The house is non-smoking throughout.

The main entrance used now by visitors, through the boot room and utility room, is actually the ‘back door’ in the original 1908 design; this entrance has been improved to provide ample storage for boots, wellies, and coats, a drying area, and an accessible toilet and shower room.

The kitchen has a large range gas cooker, microwave, toasters, large fridge/freezer, washing machine, large keeping-larder, drying cupboard, pots/pans and utensils.   Crockery, cutlery, cups and glasses are stored in the scullery.  Washing-up is a shared communal activity.  Tea towels are provided.  There is no dishwasher.

The hall/dining room is the largest room in the house and can be used for a number of purposes, depending on the size of the group.  Five large gate-leg tables can seat everyone, plus a few day visitors.  There is an upright piano in serviceable condition, as well as a basic keyboard which might be of use in the Harvey Room.

Upstairs each bed is provided with one pillow and one fleece bedspread. Groups must bring their own sheets, pillow cases and duvets.  Groups must also bring their own personal towels, toilet paper and soap.  No rooms are ensuite, but two loos and two showers on each floor; one bathr; and also a shower and two toilets on the Ground Floor are generally enough.

The 1908 double garage has been converted into a large multi-purpose space, the Harvey Room, as part of the Centenary works.  It has a seperate accessible toilet and there are drinks-making facilities in a small kitchen.  There is a wood-burning stove.  This room may be used by groups as open space, or there will be stack-away chairs and work tables for group activity; or instead the attraction of the table tennis table.

Outside there is a large garden with terraced lawns kept in rough condition.   There are picnic tables on the upper lawn and a climbing frame and goal posts on the lower lawn – bring your own bats, balls, and other equipment.. There is parking for up to 9 cars behind the house.
